We nicely sidestep this issue by not having labels (by "labels" they
mean symbolic tags). We provide cheap copies, which can be used to
get all the functionality of branches and tags at the expense of
having to manage your namespace a little more carefully. It's a bit
of a departure from CVS, but it vastly simplifies the repository
model.
